Hi ladies,  So glad I found this page.  The world has stopped and so I have time to reminice and I have been trying to contact some of my school pals.  I was at St Josephs from around 1967 to 1972 ish?    I was in Mercy House.  My time there I had great friends,  Patsy O`Niel, Julie Hinks, Diane & Marie Leslie, Sheila Roberts, Marion Brady, Ann Welch, Denise Caddick, Anne Doyle, Anne Welch, Charmainen (Kim) Willis, Bernardette Butcher, Lynda Meackin, AnneMarie Conway, Carol Twigg, Sheila Rushe, ................   Yep dont know what I did yesterday but I do remember our class.  Miss Hull was a great teacher to us.  We all loved her.   Our head mistress was sister margaret.  We had sister Joseph for religion, she was as mad as a box of frogs.   Lots of wonderful memoreies.   Miss Connor for housecraft, its all coming back. Anyway, it would be lovely to hear from any of our class.  Take care in these scary times ladies.    Jane Lewis (Murphy) O0

Wow! Miss Hull, used to teach typing, shorthand and all kinds of marvellous secretarial skills.
What a blast from the past to hear her name?

I wonder where she is now? She must have been young in the early 1970s and still there in the 1980's when I was there.
Even in the 1990s when the school was near to finishing altogether. She was still there when my brother was there in its new life as St Vincent de Paul RC High School, Denison Road, Victoria Park, the school that came from the merger of St Joseph's Girls' and St Pius X Boys.

All that remains of it school-wise is St Peter's, Kirkmanshulme Lane.
